The Girls’ Ministry Sleepover was a huge success!
There were seven adults and nine children.
Our theme was “ALL STAR CELEBRATION” and our memory verse was “Philippians 3:14 “I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” We met at the pavilion. The children ran an obstacle course and played games.
A very special “Thank you” to Pastor Dick who played his guitar as we sang praise choruses and “Thank you” to Dick Hoffman who built our campfire, gave a devotional and prayed. We cooked and ate hot dogs and S’mores. We went inside, made some crafts and decorated some STAR cookies to eat.
Before bedtime, we saw a Christian movie entitled “IESODO”. A good time was had by all.
The Rainbow Class began their Turkey badge which is “Give thanks”.
The Daisies are working on their Thanking badge. The Stars Class began working on their Esther badge.
What is Girls Ministries?
Girls Ministries is a ministry for winning girls to Jesus Christ through love and acceptance. Girls Ministries provides an environment of support and accountability while helping girls to develop their gifts and abilities. In addition, girls build lifelong relationships with mentors who encourage girls to be spiritual leaders. Girls Ministries is dividing into three sections of clubs; Kids Clubs for nursery and preschool children, Girls Clubs for elementary school girls, and Teen Girls Ministries (TGM) for middle school and high school girls. Girl Ministries uses small beginnings to make a big impact on girls and their world.
New Teen Girl Web Features
New Web features for your teen girls! The Friends and Girls Only Web pages are sporting some new, fun features, and your girls can be involved. While the previous Friends and Girls Only Web pages offered features for teen girls, more features have been added, and former ones have been replaced.
WOUNDS THAT HEAL
I remember hearing stories in high school about self-mutilation and wondering how someone could do that to her own body. It made no sense. My immediate conclusion was that it had to be for attention. What else could drive a person to do such a thing? I also remember knowing that something like that would never be a problem for me. I was too strong to ever resort to hurting myself, or so I thought.
SELF-INJURING: A CRY FOR HELP
“…By his wounds we are healed”. (Isaiah 53:5) “Sometimes I cut myself. Sometimes I burn myself.” She was a beautiful 16-year-old girl explaining her secret behaviors for when she felt overwhelmed with life and hurtful memories. I was a 23-year-old youth pastor trying to listen and help, feeling stunned by behavior I had heard of but never seen.
Keeping Girls Motivated
As a leader of teen girls you know this age group doesn’t fall into rigidly–structured programs like younger girls. Teen girls share their opinions of club format. So how do you react? Don’t take it personally; consider it their investment in the club. However, if their comments have you wondering how to keep up attendance, try these five suggestions.
